I like that you try to sneak in doublestrike with non-artifacts and that you are running very few reactive spells to focus on voltron. However, the only reactive spell I really recommend is Deflecting Swat . It’s free when you have a commander out and it is almost guaranteed to save you in a pinch. You can always redirect a spell or ability to Kediss if necessary. I started running it recently in my Kaalia deck and it’s extremely useful.
I recommend dropping the triome and two snow dual lands and replace them with Fiery Islet and Sunbaked Canyon since the former enter tapped, and plus you could always use more card draw. Forbidden Orchard would work well in this deck too, since the spirit token would easily be blocked.
The cards you are running for draw are expensive mana-wise. I would drop Zedruu for Brainstorm , he’s too expensive and seems out of place. Ponder and Rhystic Study are good options too. Also Gitaxian Probe for free draw.
The only land I recommend which enters play tapped is Hall of the Bandit Lord , for Ishai.
You are running relatively few one-drops. The tutors and mana ramp artifacts will help ensure your first turn isn’t wasted. Your removal is expensive too and you run several board wipes. Instead you could run Swords to Plowshares or Council's Judgment . Also you could use more artifact or enchantment removal like Wear / Tear . I would try to bring down your average CMC overall.
Also, I know you said you didn’t want to run any Swords, and that’s totally valid, but I would recommend only running Sword of Feast and Famine , since it’s arguably the best sword, regardless of color protection. It doubles your mana after every attack, which is always good. Plus the discard effect would affect every opponent with Kediss.
Also, you may want to run Cavern of Souls , just for Ishai, depending on your meta.
Hope you find my suggestions useful! :)

Oh no worries, that's a very fair assumption! The only reason I own those two cards is for having bought the precons they came in when they were first released. I didn't even realize Forbidden Orchard was that expensive!

Mcat1999, I really like this idea! I would run the Tempting Bandit’s Lair in my cEDH Kaalia Stax build over Forbidden Orchard . I like that the treasure gifting is a one-time drawback and that I can choose the recipient of the tokens, which adds interactiveness.

Oh, I see!
Flavor is the best reason to keep a card in a list. So Keep Breaking Wave and be happy!
Oh, I forgot to tell you about Oran-Rief, the Vastwood ! It's Novijen, Heart of Progress that enters tapped, but with a free activation cost! You can either have more lands with this is effect or simply replace one for another as you see fit!

Hey Profet93, I am in fact the same guy with the Tinybones deck.
Thanks for your suggestions, I will take your advice and swap out Tithe for Land Tax , and Exotic Orchard for Forbidden Orchard , as soon as I obtain copies of them. I like Tithe because I can cast it on the opponent’s turn for an immediate payoff, but Land Tax is reusable, and I get a better payoff when it triggers. I had been hesitant to run Forbidden over Exotic Orchard, since my meta is creature-heavy, and my opponent can take advantage of the token. But I’m going to try running it and see what happens.

Are you the same guy with the Tiny bones deck? Regardless, +1
Thoughts on swapping Tithe with Land Tax or is there something I'm missing? I read part of the above discussion for Deflecting Swat and absolutely believe Deadly Rol should be swapped with it. WAY too much utility to ignore counter counterspells, redirect targetted removal, targetted draw, targetted extra turns, etc.... Given your entire deck is based on your commander and you are playing the colors for best permanent removal, it would be in your best interest.
